Weill Cornell Medicine's wireless network service provides laptop and mobile users with fast and secure access to email and web-based services. It is available in most campus buildings, listed as "WCMC" and "eduroam." A guest network is also available to visitors on campus who do not have access to eduroam wireless.
ITS supports the following Wi-Fi networks:
WCMC, our main network
In general, when you're on campus, you should connect to the WCMC Wi-Fi network. WCMC provides secure access to the internet and all institutional resources with an ITS-tagged device. If you're working off-campus and need access to institutional apps and resources, you should connect to WCMC through our VPN service.
Untagged Device Network
Faculty, staff, and students who wish to connect their untagged devices (e.g., personal laptops, Internet of Things devices, gaming consoles, etc.) to the internet can use the Apollo network. Apollo offers non-secure connection to the internet, with no access to WCM systems or applications, apart from Papercut printing services. You can register untagged devices for Apollo access by visiting apollo.weill.cornell.edu (use a computer connected to the WCMC network access this site).
